Overview

Working in trenches can be tough and dangerous work, and keeping your workers safe will always take priority.

With Mabey’s aluminium trench shields, you can maximise the safety of your employees while increasing the efficiency of your excavations. That’s because each trench shoring box is designed to withstand up to 110kPa and provide higher working widths.

Our shoring box range consists of Australia’s first drag-capable aluminium trench shields – making them quick to position and strong when standing. So whether you’re doing pipework or other underground jobs, you can rely on the durability of Mabey aluminium shoring shields.

Mabey’s Versa Shield range goes beyond the benefits of regular aluminium trench shoring. With structural modifications and design advancements, Mabey aluminium trench boxes are able to perform at the highest standards. They offer a higher level of strength along with ease of use – with simple strut and pin assembly.

If you need a lighter drag box or trench shoring solution that can take a beating, the Mabey Versa Shield is your answer. They also provide greater internal working widths and perform better under strut clearances.
